Taking the guesswork out of dog rescue
1. Fewer dogs in shelters or otherwise homeless
2. More families with safe, well-balanced dogs
3. More dogs fulfilling a need via emotional support, therapy work, etc.
We are trying something different:
Post-adoption return-to-shelter rates for dogs and cats have been reported to be between 7 percent and 20 percent for the first six months following adoption. These numbers do not include pets who were lost, died, or were given away instead of being returned to the shelter. A majority (55.9%) of the dogs returned in a recent study were returned to the shelter due to behavior issues.
Many others who successfully keep their adopted dogs use a private trainer to navigate behavioral issues. Our goal is to offer a more streamlined approach and do everything we can to eliminate that 55.9% on the front end!
So, yes, our dogs are more costly than the average rescue (prices range from $2300-$4200 depending on the training package you choose!) but if you are one of the 73% of dog owners who seek out training for their dog (https://www.caninejournal.com/board-and-train-vs-in-home-dog-training/), then this option is cost-effective and practical!
